Two very talented TVQG members will be heading up our workshop and program for June. We are blessed to have such talented members!
Workshop – Thursday, June 20
Our creative Quilt Show VP, Pam Barr, will be leading the workshop. She will teach you how to construct this adorable basket from a jelly roll or just 2.5 inch strips of your own. Just think of the endless possibilities for this wonderful basket! Dawn would appreciate you considering to let her use yours for decorating at the Quilt Show!
Program – Friday, June 21
Talented and published Carol Staehle will present a trunk show of beautiful quilts created by "The 19th Century Patchwork Divas."
Carol learned sewing from her mother in elementary school. Although her mother never quilted, both grandmothers were stitchers and quilters. Her first encounter with making her own quilt was from a Mary Ellen Hopkins book. Her first class was a "Quilt in a Day" log cabin quilt. Later she began working at a quilt shop where she met Betsy Chutchian and they formed what has become "The 19th Century Patchwork Divas." In 2011 Carol and Betsy published a book, "History Repeated - Block Exchange Quilts by the 19th Century Patchwork Divas." The Divas have had their quilts exhibited twice at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. In 2009, the exhibition traveled to Chicago, Pittsburg and Long Beach, as well as the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum.
Come join us to see these beautiful quilts and be inspired to create some history of your own.
Please join us for both days. We're sure that you will go home inspired to create something new.
